PacTech Group has announced that Annette Burczyk and Dr. Thorsten Teutsch took over the executive management on April 1st, 2017.
Heinrich Lüdeke, who held the CEO position since 2013, stepped down at the end of March and will return to his former employer NAGASE (Europa) GmbH, Dusseldorf.
“I would like to thank Heinrich Lüdeke for the commitment and good achievements he has brought to the PacTech Group,” said Mr. Takahiro Okumura, Executive Officer of the parent company NAGASE (Japan).
Annette Burczyk, has more than 26 years of experience in taxation and financial matters where she held a number of key management positions, most recently as the Chief Financial Officer of the whole company. Mrs. Burczyk will continue to oversee the company’s financial, HR, and administration department.
With more than 20 years of experience in the microelectronics field, Dr. Teutsch is a solid choice for the new leadership of the company. He began his professional career with the company in 1997, moving to USA branch in 2002, where he was ultimately appointed COO of the subsidiaries USA and Asia. As CEO, Dr. Teutsch will focus on engineering, quality, production, and sales & marketing.

All of us at NAGASE are excited about this move.”
